CA&E: So, what are your musical influences?

WB: Man, everything... I've got a lot of Motown in me, but growing up, being a child of the late '70s early '80s, I am steeped in hip-hop, all the early stuff--Run DMC, Rakim, UTFO, Whodini, even Will Smith to a degree, like you can't call it old school, old school, but you know like in the mid-80s when he was doing his thing. I remember listening to him and when I'd freestyle--"Hey, I sound like that guy. That's cool!" But now, I love Outkast. I love the Roots. On the R&B end, I love Jill Scott, D'Angelo, Kanye West. I know I'm leaving out a lot of people. But I've got influences that are so weird or random, like, I love Elvis, I looove Elvis. James Brown is a huge influence, Marvin Gaye. I think even on the rock end, I love Lenny Kravitz, Journey, Foreigner. I think I'm one of the only brothers on the planet that can say that I like, like Skynyrd.

we should compile a list .. we got u-god, kevin smith, ludacris, wayne brady..
